I like you clean or mucky.
I like you best in your vest.
Darling, darling ducky.
“That’s all it was, but the reason it was so funny to us was that I always used to walk in the kitchen by accident while my sisters were washing. I’d say, ‘Oh, no!’ and they’d be standing there half naked and they’d yell at me to get out!”
Sending cards, for David, was really just a traditional thing to do until he met his first love. He was 14 and she was 13. Her name was Ailsa Payne and she had long black hair and a beautiful complexion. She was the lucky girl who received Davy’s first “love” Valentine.
When David was last in England he thought of Ailsa whom he hasn’t seen since he was 14. Even though he was a Monkee and constantly being mobbed, he thought how much he wanted to stand on the corner near her house and see if she might walk past. Davy says, “Now Valentines Day is more of a kid’s thing. It’s like Santa Claus, for when you’re young.” Perhaps that’s true, but he can’t deny the curiosity he feels about his first Valentine love—a love he’ll always cherish.
